What are your email options in Windows 7?
....Many of those folks used Outlook Express for many years. OE was introduced in 1997 as part of Internet Explorer 4.0 and was included in Windows 98, 2000, Me and XP. Recently, as many XP users have bought new computers that come with Windows 7, they have been unhappy to find that part of Microsoft's initiative to cut down on "operating system bloat" included leaving out some of the extra applications - such as the email client.
That decision actually makes sense. There are many people who never used the built-in email client, so there's really no reason to have it cluttering up the hard drive. And it's not so much the fact that it isn't built-in that is bothering people, it's the fact that they aren't able to download and install Outlook Express on Windows 7. Microsoft actually dropped OE when they released Vista, which included an updated mail client called Windows Mail. Unlike OE, it wasn't designed as a part of Internet Explorer, but its interface was very similar to that of OE...
...Windows Live Mail is the free Microsoft mail client for Windows 7, and it can also be installed on Vista to replace Windows Mail....
Please click here to read the article > http://www.win7news.net/?id=33 < this will further explain the situation.
My suggestion, click on the links for windows live mail - direct from microsoft - learn more and 'you'll probably have to learn how to use it' instead of OE - this is Microsoft's grand design. It would probably be better to have and keep 'virtualization' functioning and use 'live mail' instead of keeping old OE and have virtualization off - security wise - in my opinion.

Personally never used OE - just direct to Live 'Hotmail' or Yahoo.mail on my home pc or any outside pc (library's free pc usage, etc.)
